Cheap Blythe Accessories - Hunt And Ye Shall Find

Today on eBay I really scored. 

I found a Buy It Now auction for 45 pairs of Barbie shoes and boots for only 10.00.  Add the shipping and the total cost was 13.08.  Then I got an e-mail from the seller telling me she found 4 more pairs and threw them in as well.  That's about 27 cents a pair!!!  Some I know will fit Blythe and the ones that don't will fit my vintage reproduction Barbie and/or my two My Scene Barbies that I rescued.

Christmas morning as a kid wasn't this exciting...  :o)  Here's some of the loot.

The Day My Second 2010 Stock Blythe - Nicky Lad Arrived...

Nicky Lad is my second Blythe.  She was an early, completely unexpected gift from my hubby for my birthday July 5th.  I named her Nicole Marie.  She has the prettiest, new eye chip color.

I have to say that after experiencing the Blythe clone route several years after I got my first Blythe, Simply Mango, I would definitely say to save up and buy a real Blythe, not a clone.

Clones in NO way compare to the real thing.  One of my clones came with terrible hair and a bum leg.  The other one came with uneven eye lashes and a small crack/slit in her leg that I just recently noticed.  Not wanting to do any, I did have to do some customizing of those two just to fix their flaws.  I love them too, but mostly I just feel sorry for them.  One of these days I'll post their stories.

Anyway...A Story in Pics - The Day Nicky Lad arrived...This time, this girl was just left on my porch.  I didn't have to sign for her like I did for Simply Mango.

Blythe Mini Wardrobe/Closet Display

Nicole Marie (Nicky Lad) and Mini Lalaloopsy - Dollop Light 'n' Fluffy want to show you something. 

I made this cute, little wardrobe/closet in no time with things I gathered from around my house. I just used double sided tape to paper the inside so at a later date I can redecorate easily if I want.

Soon, I'll do a post on how I made the hangers and with what and where you buy them.

My New Girl Is Here!

The usual unwrapping pics will follow in another post soon. 

But, for now - 3 pics of Nicky Lad who I named Nicole Marie.  I think she is just the cutest thing.  The only thing I'm not completely  happy about is her hair.  I like the short cut and the color, but it's a bit frizzy on the ends.   :o(  She just might have some bad hair days ahead of her. 

I DO really love this new eye chip color of pale blue which is one of the reasons I chose her.

Another Girl Is Arriving Soon To Live With Us!!!


In a little over a month it will be 2 years since I got my first Blythe for my birthday.  She was a gift to myself.  When I learned that there was a Blythe that came with her own pet Chihuahua - I overlooked her orange hair and just had to have her for obvious reasons.  I named her Margo and her doggie Chico which is my Chihuahua's name  Well...

As a bit early birthday gift this year I was super surprised when my hubby told me if I've seen a Blythe doll that I want to just go ahead and get it and that I'm worth it!  I'm so excited...When I told him how much she'd cost he said he'd rather get me that than some other things for my birthday.

She's another stock Blythe and has already been ordered.  She is flying in from Hong Kong.  Margo came from Japan.  Hopefully, she will arrive sometime next week so I can introduce her.

I'll wait until she arrives before saying who she is.  But, I will say that I've already named her Nicole Marie and she's quite cute and comes with some really cute clothes and accessories.  I will also say that she has a special eye color besides the blue, pink, and green eyes that Margo has.  The new eye color will replace the orange that she also has.

A T-Shirt For Margo

I made this little t-shirt tonight using THIS pattern -

I sewed mine completely by hand after not so good results using my sewing machine.  I need to get a ball tipped needle for knits first.  I added a cute, little Scottie dog button and a mini button close to the neck.  And Margo, how did that family of ducks get inside???
